Weekend Casual + a Giveaway

Hello, hello! I hope everyone had a nice weekend, but if you are suffering from the Monday morning blues, I might just have the cure. If you are a jewelry fan, read on for a chance to add to your collection of baubles!

It’s always good to give your nails a chance to breathe, so I try to go polish-free for at least 1-2 weeks, every 2 months. I’m not a nail expert, so I don’t know if that’s actually the best timing interval, but it’s been working for me thus far. 🙂

When a top requires a more delicate piece, or when I want to accessorize more casually, daintier necklaces are perfect. Meraki Handmade is one of my newest favorite shop for such pieces.

    I love that Jolene necklace (reminds me of the bolero ties that are super popular here in Texas). Thanks for reminding me that I need to give my nails a break; weeks and weeks of polish changes can’t be good for them.
